Mar-28-12  twinlark: Wang Yue had a few drawing opportunities, the last one being after <61. Ke2>:

Instead of <61...f4> which just loses, he had <61...Kd8> which lets his king get to the queen side in time:

<61...Kd8 61. a7 Bxa7 62. Rxa7 Nc3+ 63. Kf3 Nxb5>:

  luzhin: I would rather credit Ding Liren for the immense pressure he applied to his opponent over so many moves: it's easy to denigrate Wang's blunder on move 61 but that often happens towards the end of a long and exhausting defensive struggle. If we're going to be picky, then Ding missed 57.Rd3! (with the point 57...Nxb3 58.Rb3, or if 57...Ne4 58.Rd8+! Ke7 59.Rb8!)
Mar-28-12  twinlark:

It is easy to be picky, there were a few lapses that lesser players can discern from going through engine analyses, but can't we do both? Give Ding Liren credit for applying pressure and sympathise with Wang for a defensive lapse after a long exhausting defensive struggle?

These guys are some of the world's best but what are we going to talk about if we don't look at their games, analyse and speculate?

  tamar: 23 Nf7! was a shot, which Wang Yue tried to exploit by not capturing, but leaving it with no exit.

The whole game reminds me of Lasker's division of chess players into two types.

"The masters of the first type found and carried out brilliant combinations, whereas the masters of the second type devised the systematic exchange as a means of weakening and in the end parrying the attack."

It seems to me Wang Yue absorbed the first blow 23 Nf7 reasonably well, and even devised a way to pressure the knights with 25...b5, when ...Rb6 at some point is a threat, and ...b4 gives drawing chances as well.

Ding Liren continued to play aggressively with 26 f5! and Wang Yue then had additional problems with his King.

After huge efforts Wang Yue secured his King, only to find that his Qside pawns were vulnerable, and missed the fortress that would have drawn.

Fabulous game.

  Penguincw: Top seed (I assume) also loses. If the pawns were off the board, it would be drawn (depending on how close the knight is to the king).
